Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson
I have a jar full of titles that have been on my shelves for a long time. Every month, I choose one to read. I'm currently reading my choice from last month, The Blade Itself by Joe Abercrombie. This month, I chose Brandon Sander's Mistborn. I've heard so many amazing things about this series, so I'm excited to read it!
The High Mountains of Portugal: A Novel by Yann Martel
The premise of this book sounds so interesting. This is a book that ties together three different stories spanning across the lives of three men in different generations. Each man takes a journey to the mountains of Portugal to solve an old mystery involving a notebook and a motorcycle. That's all I know about it. I think this is the type of book that you don't want to know a lot about when you get into it.
Margaret the First: A Novel by Danielle Dutton
This is back on my to-read list for this month. I took it on vacation but didn't have a chance to crack it open. This is a historical fiction based on the real life Margaret Cavendish, a 17th-century Duchess. She was a writer when women were not "supposed to be" writers. She was exiled to France after King Charles I was overthrown and later married William Cavendish. He supported her writing, and she was one of the first tabloid celebrities. Historical fiction is one of my favorite genres, and this one sounds promising.
Seconds by Bryan Lee O'Malley
I have been reading this for a couple months. It's a graphic novel about a lady who owns and operates her own restaurant. She's at a turning point in her life where she's trying to open her second restaurant. One night, after making a bad decision, she sees a house spirit in her bedroom and later finds some magical mushrooms. When she eats a mushroom, she can undo her bad decision. When she wakes up, her bad decision has been reversed. She makes a bad habit of undo-ing all of her bad decisions, and the house spirit tells her to stop. I have been reading this graphic novel little by little, but I am ready to finish it. I want to know what happens, so this is at the top of my reading list!
